Respect Boundaries: Sexual Violence Awareness
The Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act, a federal law, requires all new incoming students to receive primary prevention and awareness education about sexual violence. This law went into effect in March of 2014, which means all new freshmen, graduate students, and transfer students enrolling after that date must complete the Respect Boundaries: Sexual Violence Awareness program.
All current students, including new students who are required to complete this program, may access the Respect Boundaries program by logging into Blackboard using your Purdue career account information.
There are three modules associated with the program:
- Purdue University Policies and Procedures
- Risk Reduction and Prevention
- Supporting Survivors: Resources and Services
New students must complete all three modules to obtain credit for this program. The program is self-paced and will take approximately 60 minutes to complete.
If you have any questions, please contact Nicole Weibel, Education Coordinator, Office of the Vice President for Ethics and Compliance, by email at email@example.com or by phone at 765.496.3201.
